This image showed us an example of a spider web, constructed by a Chilean recluse spider, Loxosceles laeta, a member of the most toxic species of Loxosceles spiders. This recluse can grow to 25mm in length, and is pale yellow to reddish-brown. See PHIL 3161, for an example of a L. laeta, seen from the dorsal perspective.
